Today we meditate upon the Letter to the Hebrews and the words of Saint Irenaeus about the relationship of flesh and spirit.
In uniting himself with our humanity, Christ's divinity has given us the power to overcome our twin foes of sin and death. The divinity which has been united to our humanity in the person of Jesus Christ, is the same divinity that belongs to the Holy Spirit which continues to fill us and to strengthen us against all that might lead us along the wrong path. Being filled with the Holy Spirit does not mean we cast aside the body, indeed, our Lord himself took upon a body so that we might be saved. Rather, it is this vessel of the flesh in which we live that we must strive to also make a vessel which the Spirit might fill.
